About Plimoth Plantation
Plimoth Plantation (spelled with an “i” to replicate the native speak of English colonists who homesteaded the land) is a recreated pilgrim settlement camp in Plymouth, Massachusetts. Authentic Native American Indians are available to pass on and educate the public about their many traditions at the outdoor exhibit called the Wampanoag Homesite. Recently named the Best History Museum in all of New England, this museum offers a full scale reproduction of the Mayflower which pilgrims used to migrate from England to America in 1620. Actors dress up in period pieces and interact throughout the makeshift colony called the 17th Century English Village much as pilgrims would have almost 400 years ago. The Wampanoag Homesite is staffed by Native Americans who are proud to display and speak to children about their deerskin clothing, mat-covered wetus, basket weaving skills, stories, dances and more. The Plimoth Plantation partners with the Smithsonian to offer engaging educational activities and experiences for kids. The site is also home to a rare breed animal preservation program where historic breeds such as Miling Devons, Kerry Cattle, Arapawa and San Clemente Island goats, wild swine, Wiltshire Horned sheep can be seen.
